Historic horse-drawn carriage exhibition

Historic horse-drawn carriages, a coach, buggies, horse drawn hearse or butcher's sleigh among others comprise a fleet of vehicles that could be typically seen on the medium size estate such as Veltrusy in 18th - 19th century. Collection is housed in the early baroque barn of the farmyard.

Exhibition is folllowing a fictional story of a young nobleman and his journey through the different situations of his life in connection to the various vehicles and items on display.
